Who sets school term and holiday dates?

The Local Authority is required to set school term and holiday dates for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools.

The governing bodies of Foundation and Voluntary Aided schools, and the Academies, are responsible for setting their own dates.

Usually all schools within the Borough operate the same term and holiday dates.

It is recommended that you check with the school to get its precise start and finish dates. 

How school holiday dates are set

School term and holiday dates are usually set over 18 months in advance of the academic year. They are based on a school year of 195 days although individual schools can use 5 of these days for staff training.

Parents should contact the individual school to find out when their training days will be.
